Introduction: Electric Guitar From Scratch

Had to find wood that matches the size i want, it wasen't an easy job since you can't easily find wood with these dimensions so i had to glue 3 woods together to get that square part that you see in the photo

Step 1: Frets

Determining the scale between each fret had much work for me and calculations to be able to do it right, as it determines the notes

Step 2: Cutting the Wood

Now, since i don't have the tools you can imagine how hard it was to cut this very thick wood by hand.

Step 3: Final Finishes

Then i ordered the electronics from ebay and painted it manually also, since it's a wood contest im not going to add the painting process, ok here's the final images, i hope you like it :)
